The following fun, hands-on artsy craft is designed to help you feel like a Pop artist! You’ll be creating art that pops like Roy Lichtenstein’s painting titled -R-R-R-R-Ring!! by drawing an everyday object — in the style of comic book art — that makes a sound, for which you can include an onomatopoeia word.
Begin by thinking of some examples of objects from every-day life, which make a sound that would illustrate onomatopoeia. For instance — a hammer, bang; a truck, vroom; a firecracker, boom; a turkey, gobble; a sheep, baa; a snake, hiss; a dog, woof; a toaster, pop; a car, zoom; a bird, chirp; a duck, quack; a chicken, cluck; a drum, bang; a faucet, drip; etc. Can you think of any others?
Whatever onomatopoeia you choose to illustrate, it’s sure to be a fabulous piece of art that pops — just like Lichtenstein’s -R-R-R-R-Ring!!
